Upcoming renewal mailings 

The following card and pass renewals are due for despatch over the next few weeks:

Product To company addresses To home addresses
GoVia Staff Passes n/a 11 November
Status Passes 30 November 7 December
Residential Passes 2 December 9 December
EMT Passes n/a 9 December

If you have sent in a late declaration or other requisite piece of information for a family member, those passes may be despatched slightly later than the dates indicated.  This also applies to late notification of changes of address; and in the case of Status Passes, late submissions of photographs.  Please therefore allow a little extra time before notifying us of non-delivery.

If an entire family’s cards are missing, and you suspect postal non-delivery, please only notify us of this only a couple of days before a card is due to commence.

Remember that in cases of postal non-delivery there is a 3-month window during which cards can be replaced free of charge – thereafter a replacement fee would be payable.  This is to help us trace non-delivered cards, and reduce potential fraud.
